CO₂ and air pollution damages from gasoline and electric cars

Electric cars are only much better than gasoline cars in a few places in the West

Electric cars are worse almost everywhere in the East

Which is why electric cars should be subsidized (but only a bit) in the West, and taxed heavily in the East
(on average taxed at $1,095, that is a *negative* subsidy)

Electric cars on average deliver *negative* environmental benefits of 0.73¢/mi relative to comparable gasoline cars

3.2¢ benefits in Los Angeles, -3.1¢ in ND
1¢ benefits in cities, -1.7¢ outside
